Regenerative Treatments for PTSD & PTSI

Regenerative Treatments for PTSD & PTSI

Amid the challenges faced by many military personnel, the silent battles waged WITHIN are often the most profound. Post-traumatic stress disorder/injury (PTSD/PTSI), depression, insomnia, and severe stress can cast a long shadow on overall health, disrupting daily living and social interactions.

It’s important to understand the very intricate web of how these afflictions can impact health, the underlying overactivity of the sympathetic nervous system, and the promising breakthrough treatment — Dual Stellate Ganglion Block (DSGB).

What is PTSD

PTSD stands for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, a mental health condition triggered by experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares, severe anxiety, and uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

What is PTSI

PTSI stands for Post-Traumatic Stress Injury, which is a term some prefer to use instead of PTSD, as it emphasizes the idea that the condition is an injury rather than a disorder, reducing the stigma associated with seeking treatment. It acknowledges that individuals may be affected by traumatic experiences in a way that requires healing and support.

How do PTSD & PTSI Impact Health?

PTSD/PTSI, depression, insomnia, and severe stress aren't merely emotional states; they are deeply entwined with someone's overall health.

From nightmares to burnout, concentration issues to anxiety, these disorders can manifest in so many different ways, disrupting not only mental well-being but also physical health and daily functioning.

Some signs and symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can include:

  1. Intrusive memories: Flashbacks, nightmares, or distressing memories of the traumatic event.

  2. Avoidance: Avoiding reminders of the traumatic event, such as places, people, activities, or conversations.

  3. Negative changes in mood or thoughts: Persistent negative beliefs about oneself or the world, distorted feelings of guilt or blame, diminished interest in activities once enjoyed, feelings of detachment or estrangement from others, or difficulty experiencing positive emotions.

  4. Hyperarousal: Feeling constantly on edge, experiencing irritability, anger outbursts, difficulty concentrating, having trouble sleeping, or being easily startled.

  5. Reactive symptoms: Experiencing strong emotional or physical reactions to reminders of the traumatic event, such as panic attacks, sweating, rapid heartbeat, or feeling tense or shaky.

It's important to note that PTSD symptoms can vary in severity and may develop at different times after the traumatic event. If you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms of PTSD, it's essential to seek professional help and support.

The Overactive Sympathetic Nervous System

It has been discovered that the root of these afflictions often lies in the overactivity of the sympathetic nervous system. Nightmares, depression, hyper vigilance, and other complex mental health disorders are manifestations of this heightened state, affecting everything from sleep patterns to social interactions.

Introducing Dual Stellate Ganglion Block Treatment

Amid the shadows of these challenges, a glimmer of hope emerges in the form of Dual Stellate Ganglion Block (DSGB) treatment.

DSR SGB involves two injections of local anesthetic in one side of the neck next to a bundle of sympathetic nerves called stellate ganglion that regulates the fight-flight response.

This groundbreaking biological intervention has shown remarkable efficacy in alleviating symptoms associated with PTSD/PTSI, insomnia, depression, and more. By targeting the sympathetic nervous system, DSGB offers a new frontier in the battle against these debilitating conditions. Currently, ageRejuvenation Clinics of Florida are conducting a research study partnered with Operator Relief Fund to study the effects of DSGB Injections to relief the symptoms of PTSD/PTSI.

Exploring the Positive Effects

Discover the promising outcomes observed with DSGB, ranging from improved sleep patterns and reduced anxiety to enhanced overall mental well-being. This treatment can potentially provide a beacon of hope for military personnel grappling with the impacts of PTSD/PTSI and related disorders.

The Path to Healing

It's time to explore alternative approaches to healthcare beyond solely relying on medication. As we navigate the complexities of mental health in the military, DSGB stands as a testament to the strides being made in treatment. By addressing the root cause and providing a holistic approach to healing, this intervention opens doors to a brighter future for those who have sacrificed for our safety.

In the world of mental health (specifically concerning PTSD), hope takes shape in the form of Dual Stellate Ganglion Block treatment. As we unravel the intricate connection between PTSD/PTSI, depression, insomnia, and an overactive sympathetic nervous system, DSGB can emerge as a powerful ally in breaking the chains that bind.

It's important for individuals with PTSD to consult with a qualified healthcare provider to develop a treatment plan that works best for you.
